change tempo of a song (lets say from 120bpm to 140 bpm) and u hear a change in pitch of the devastor filters and consequent change of distortion tone.

Hi,

Devastor doesn't care about the tempo at all, it hasn't take the tempo into its calculations, so it cannot affect the sound directly. However it can distiguish a small, non audible harmonics of the input sound (as the distortion does). I suppose Your input source make small harmonic distortion when the tempo is changed and Devastor only makes it more audible.

Could You post some samples with Devastor turned on and turned off?
EDIT: in two ratios of tempo of course :)

Thank You in advance,

Best regards,
Sebastian

you are right.
it was in the source the problem and could not hear those harmonics without the distortion bringin them to life.
thanks for quick reply.
